Mollie Simmons Swiss Pairs - 5th June - at the clubhouse

This is a Swiss Pairs competition in memory of Mollie Simmons who was a founding member of the club, did the scoring and master points certificates twice a week for about 30 years before the era of computers and recipient of the Dimmie Fleming Award from the EBU for services to bridge. It is a charity event open to all members and visitors, played annually starting at 11.00 am on a weekday. It normally includes a lunch (f2f). Swiss Pairs works like this: Your first opponents are drawn at random. All pairs play the same boards in (usually) six 6 or 8 board matches. The first match is scored as match pointed pairs over the whole room. Then you are allocated your next opponents according to your first round score: i.e. the top scoring pairs play each other and the bottom scoring pairs play each other. So you should play another pair who had a similar score to you in the first round. After every match you are allocated opponents whose total score is as near to yours as possible.

Charges will be 5.50 for members and 7.50 for visitors

Please register to attend. We are also asking people to bring a food item for lunch. If you can provide some food please let us know below what you can bring -we normally have 75% savoury and 25% sweet

Thank you!
